Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chain, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire.

Tire size on sidewall


  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

2007 Ford Fusion

I'm prepared again. I've used these chains on my last car, 2007 Ford Fusion. Everyone at work was laughing at me when I put on the chains. (The snow was light in the morning). But later on, the snow turned heavy in the afternoon.

The snowplow have not arrived yet. And many cars could not leave the parking lot.

Now, it was my turn to laugh.

Thank you very much.

This product is the best. I highly recommend to purchase the tensioner with the chains. You would be sorry if you don't.


The product fits my "Prius" tires unlike most traditional chains. I think they will serve me well throughout the winter as I travel for work and I think I will end up driving through several snowy/chains-required passes this year. service was EXCELLENT



2014 Ford Fiesta

Defiantly got the job done and takes one the snow in the mountains we'll but they do rust and the excess cable connecter broke first use which makes it extremely difficult to put on.


Haven't had to use the snow cables as of yet.However the courtesy of your phone sales order rep.was very good.Your website was very good,including the details of the product & on installation was very good.I received the cables in the time as I was told by rep.very prompt.UPS service.So far very good service,good company.

2016 Honda Fit

Haven't had to sue them yet but I've owned enough cable chains to compare and they look as solid as any. They shipped quick even in the busy season and come in a nylon bag that'll be perfect for clean car storage after use.

2013 Ford Fiesta

Ordered my cables from Great price so was a little worried that they would not be up to par. They arrived quickly and I tried them on immediately as it was going to snow that day. They fit perfectly. Good price and good service.


Just received the tire chains (bought a pair for our SUV and for our small commuter car). Both were in nice carry bags. The rubber adjuster I bought for each pair easily fit in the bag. I haven't used them yet but wanted the "insurance" of having them in the car.

2015 Honda Fit

I bought the tires as we plan a trip to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. In order to go there, one must have chains in the cart.

I hope that I do not have to put them, on but the video on your web site would be a great help.

The order was delivered in plenty of time.

2008 Toyota Corolla

These cable chains are great. I have used them before. Just in time for winter.
They arrived quickly after I ordered them. Thank you.


Only had to use them once in the past year.
had to put them on to go over Snoqualmie Pass east of Seattle on I-90
They worked perfectly.
(only drawback is that your fingers will get cold when you put them on)

2015 Hyundai Accent

2013 Honda Fit

Fits great!




Great prices, great products, and great service don't always go hand in hand. This time they did though. Very satisfied customer.


Very fast delivery and they fit!



Fast delivery - quality product - good price


Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

I had purchased these in preparation for another New England winter.
I had the chance to use them the other day with poor road conditions consisting of ice and snow.
I fitted the chains on just fine, and secured them with a pair of rubber adjusters.
The first few miles seemed fine for driving, just slightly bumpy, but was expecting it.
Around mile 5 I hit the pavement and the right wheel chains just snapped.
Pulled over and saw my wheel well torn up.
Unless I somehow attached them wrong, these are not the quality I was lead to believe.

Tire cables are the most economical option for a tire traction device and are typically best for occasion use. For an upgraded tire chain for your Priuss 17565-15 tires without breaking the bank, I recommend the Pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWRS64
pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair
because they are easy to install and feature a square, alloy steel chain for better traction.

Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

I ordered the snow cables for my Subaru 2018 Outback and received them in 3 days! Your customer service is outstanding! I reordered a second set and received them in 4 days. I just had a chance to use them in Atlanta when we had ice and snow. I used only one set on the front and they worked perfectly. i watched the etrailer installation video for a Subaru and it made the easy to install. It took me less then 5 minutes in my garage. (Outside in the snow and ice might take longer). I drove around Atlanta in the ice and snow and the cables performed flawlessly. I plan to buy a set for my daughter. Thanks again!


Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

Worked great for my 2017 Ford F 150 STX with rear wheel drive. We stayed near the west entrance of Yosemite. It snowed about 18 inches of snow the day we arrived and the cables did amazing on highway 41 and throughout Yosemite Valley. Road conditions were pretty bad but I felt really safe driving with these cables. Really good quality chains! Shipping was delayed a day but I ordered them only 7 days before Christmas.


Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

Great, the only thing i was curious about was the rubber tie downs. I am asuming the chains will fit tight enough not to need them?

Rubber adjusters, that are sold separately, are recommended, as the chains you purchased do not have self-tightening cams or adjusters. Here are some for size 15-18 inch rims: item # PW105

Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

Great product. Did a dry run in preparation for a trip up to Yosemite in the winter. I purchased these w/ the Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster (TCMA2) and it fit great on my 2017 Toyota Sienna SE (P235/50R19). The installation video on was VERY helpful.


Review from a similar Cable in Tire Chains

Good news. The order arrived on the 6th day. To be sure they fit I did a test installation. I installed the Glacier PW1038 snow cable/chains on our 2016 Subaru Forester (225 -60R-17). The chains fit perfectly and on the 2nd notch. (See attached pix).

nice fit: away from the rim and other body parts. The PW105s also helped greatly to snug the package.

Ask the Experts about this Glacier Tire Chains

  • Should Rusty Tire Cables be Replaced
    If the cables are pretty rusty it's probably time for a new set. Snow cables like the Glacier part # PW1026 aren't designed to last forever and if yours have significant rust it's time to replace them before they fail on your vehicle and cause damage.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2018 Hyundai Accent
    We do have a large selection of tire chains available for your 2018 Hyundai Accent. In order to choose the correct size chains or cables, you will first need to locate the tire size on your vehicle. This will be located on the sidewall of the tire itself. I also recommend checking the owner's manual for your Hyundai Accent, as there will be specific guidelines and restrictions you will need to follow with regards to the use of tire chains.

  • Recommended Tire Cables for 185/65-15 Tires
    The correct set of tire cables for the 185/65-15 tires that you have now is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1026. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1034 that you are referencing would not even fit on your tires as they are much too big. Trying to attach these cables to your tires would be an immediate risk to both you and others on the road. Unfortunately, the cables do not have the adjustability that chains do so it is not like you can take links out either.

  • Are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Part # PW1026 Sold in Pairs
    All of our tire chains and cables such as the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1026 are sold in pairs (2 chains). As long as your 2007 Toyota Yaris has 185/60-15 tires then these cables will work well for you. If you instead have the 175/65-14 tires then you will want to use part # PW1018. The Glacier Rubber Adjusters part # PW100 are also recommended for either set. I have attached a review video of these cables for you as well.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 20 inch Rims
    The first thing you need to do is consult the owners manual of your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 to determine if there are restrictions on snow chain usage with your vehicle. For a chain confirmed to fit your P275/55R20 I would recommend the Titan Chain part # TC2533. These install easily and will last you a while.

For a multi-arm option we also have the part # PW105 that is compatible with these chains.
